High-scoring youngster Melvyn Jaminet has taken the rugby world by storm, and France's full-back will be looking to use his accurate kicking and electric pace to help lead his nation to back-to-back Six Nations titles.
|Place of Birth||Hyeres, France|
Melvyn Jaminet is a professional rugby union player, representing Toulouse and France as a full-back.
Melvyn Jaminet was born in Hyeres, a commune in the South East coast of France.
Melvyn Jaminet is 23 years old, he was born on 30th June 1999.
Melvyn Jaminet started his senior career with Perpignan, playing 41 times for the French side and scoring 459 points between 2019-2022.
In the 2022 season he moved to Toulouse and has been a key player ever since.
Jaminet plays as a full-back for club and country, and is renowned for his blistering pace and ability to run with the ball.
Unlike most full-backs, he is also the chosen points kicker for club and country, with his accuracy from conversions and penalties a key weapon in the arsenal of any side he represents.
In just 12 appearances for France, Jaminet has registered an incredible 160 points for his nation, including 54 in last year's Six Nations, where he finished as the second highest points scorer in the tournament.
Despite his clear talent, and the key-role he played for France in last year's Six Nations, Jaminet isn't a guaranteed starter for his nation.
This is nothing against the speedy full-back, France are just lucky enough to have another very impressive player in Thomas Ramos who fills the same position.
There will be stiff competition between the pair for a starting spot, and between them they will ensure that France are in safe hands in the number 15 spot.
